Argentine University of Enterprise (Spanish: Universidad Argentina de la Empresa, UADE) is a private university in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was founded by the Argentine Chamber of Corporations.[2][3]

UADE is an institution which is conceived, born and developed from a global management perspective. It was created with the aim of training professionals who adapt to the growing needs of each industry. The growth was possible thanks to the determination of young people with an entrepreneurial vocation as well as the solidarity support of companies and institutions in the country, thus renewing the solid prestige earned by our university.[4]

It has campuses in Buenos Aires and Pinamar. The Buenos Aires campus features 75,000 square metres (810,000 sq ft) of classrooms, laboratories, library, sports centre, theatre, food court and a residence hall.[5][6] As of 2020, it had 33,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students and 1,877 professors.[1]

It is recognized for providing a uniquely elite education and it is clearly defined in contrast to the supposed shortcomings of the public university.[7]


An urban campus in Buenos Aires.

UADE was founded in 1957 by members of the Cámara Argentina de Sociedades Anónimas as the Instituto Superior de Estudios de la Empresa. Its activities began in the building of Belgrano Av. 687 under the direction of Dr. Jacob Wainer, and with a total of 338 business executives enrolled. The first class was delivered by Dr. Anwar Obeid who spoke about "The corporation: its importance and influence in the development of the modern world." At the end of that year, to arrange education and higher education in a comprehensive manner, the Institute became the Argentina Foundation for Advanced Business Studies. It aimed to promote training in all disciplines related to the development of social enterprise as an economic institution, considering the specific problems of the real business in Argentina.Around 500 business leaders completed the course in 1958 and the following year, in a large ceremony held at the Plaza Hotel in Buenos Aires, the course for 1959 was opened. At the event, the Minister of Economy, Dr. William W. Klein, the Secretary of State for Trade, Dr. Joseph C. Orfila, and the Minister of Education and Justice, Dr. Luis Mac Kay (who spoke on behalf of the President of the Republic, Dr. Arturo Frondizi) delivered their speeches. The growth process was consolidated in 1962 when, in the context of the Law 14,557 of 1958 authorizing the operation of private universities in the country, the Chamber of Corporations decided to create the UNIVERSIDAD ARGENTINA DE LA EMPRESA, whose statutes were approved by that institution on June 7, 1963, and the National Executive Power on August 27 of that year.

In 1963, the first degrees were offered in areas of special interest for business: "Marketing," "Costs", "Finance and Organisation", "Organisation of Production" and "Industrial Relations" . In 1964 other degrees were added, such as "Business Applied Statistics", "Market Research", "Public Relations", "Management Techniques" and "Production Engineering and Construction Organization."

In 1968, the Universidad Argentina de la Empresa joined the Council of Rectors of Private Universities (CRUP), after Law 17,604 passed in that year, institutionalizing the agency's performance in the education activities of Argentina, recognizing it as a representative body in the planning and action of the private sector, and acting as an adviser for the National Executive Power.

In 1984, the headquarters at Lima St. 717 were inaugurated and, subsequently, in 1992, 1993, 1997, and 1998 new buildings were added to create the current building complex on Lima St., functionally integrated, bringing all the faculties and departments of the university together. In 2000 the Faculty and Alumni Club was added in an annex building on Chile St., thus extending the facilities that make the UADE urban campus the most modern in Argentina. In 2003, the School of Management (EDDE) was opened on Freedom St. 1340, with the purpose of developing a new business generation in the country. Finally, in 2005, the UADE University Residence was opened, which is capable of accommodating 105 local and foreign students.

In 2008, the Urban Campus UADE was opened with the objective of helping students have a comprehensive and complete college experience. The campus includes a residence hall, a model library, a cultural and exhibition centre, a sports centre, and a microstage with capacity for 1,200 people, which with the 181 classrooms and laboratories account for more than 75,000 square metres (810,000 sq ft).

In 2009, UADE and CONICET, the main body for the promotion of science and technology in Argentina, signed an Agreement on Scientific and Technological Cooperation which will develop an extensive interaction between the two institutions. In this regard, co-financing will be sought with the CONICET doctoral fellowships as well as the possibility that researchers from this body can develop their work of study in UADE.

Finally, the UADE Labs were set up in May 2010. This is a building of 9000 m2 which is presented to national and regional level as the first integrated university laboratory building in the country. In it, students in 51 undergraduate and graduate programs will attend 60,000 hours of practice and research annually.[8]

It is recognized worldwide by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs, the Public Relations Society of America, International Advertising Association and Tourism Education Quality.
